myDCR launching for cancer patients in Dorset



Later this month the first group of cancer patients in Dorset will be invited to use the Dorset Care Record to view test and scan results, check information about appointments, and access a library of useful resources.


Health and social care organisations in Dorset may hold different sets of records about you. The Dorset Care Record brings that information together in one place, and myDCR is the patient portal that gives you access to your record.


You may be invited to use myDCR by your cancer care team at the end of your cancer treatment. The secure system stores and displays the personal and medical information held about you, so you benefit from improved access to information and up-to-date medical details. It will also allow your cancer care team to contact you directly.


Breast cancer patients at Dorset County Hospital will be the first to start using the system, which will later be rolled out to include patients with all cancer types at any hospital in Dorset. Do not worry, you will be given clear instructions about how to register, and how to use myDCR. We are sharing information to improve care, but you can also choose not to use it at all.
